FiiFixit focused on two things: a tiny brush fiber attached to the back of the hinge to prevent dust from entering, and Samsung's warning that the Galaxy Z Flip wasn't dustproof. So iFixit put the Galaxy Z Flip on a very tough dust test. This involves placing it in a zippered plastic bag with purple powder and shaking tightly.
の 後 After this test, there was a smear when moving the hinge. Furthermore, when the terminal was completely disassembled, purple dust entered everywhere inside the housing.
"Folding components [even if not exposed to purple dust] are likely to wear out gradually and will eventually need to be replaced."iFixit states in conclusion.
He added that the glass display was covered with a thin plastic layer that was easily damaged, making repair very difficult.
The overall ease of repair score was 2 out of 10 [10 is the easiest to repair].
な か っ Samsung did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
